Ji Chang Wook and Kim Ji Won are confirmed to star in a new romance drama from It’s Okay to Not Be Okay director Park Shin Woo.
The roles were confirmed on September 21 for the KakaoTV’s original drama City Couple’s Way of Love (literal translation).
The drama, which is scheduled to premiere before the end of 2020, will tell the story of the realistic dating lives of young people fighting to survive in a hectic city. The short-form drama is currently being produced with multiple seasons in mind, and the first season will bear the intriguing subtitle “My Lovable Camera Thief.”
The series will have 30-minute episodes from a script co-written by Jung Hyun Jung, the writer behind the I Need Romance series, and Romance is a Bonus Book.
Ji Chang Wook will be playing Park Chae Won, an honest and overly passionate architect who loves the city streets. After a woman that he calls the “camera thief” steals his heart one summer night and then disappears, he is unable to get over her.
Kim Ji Won will be starring as Lee Eun Oh, a freelance marketer who spontaneously decides to adopt a false identity in an unfamiliar place. She accidentally ends up falling in love with Park Chae Won while posing as the free-spirited Yoon Sun Ah.
Ji Chang Wook said, “Because this is a drama by writer Jung Hyun Jung and director Park Shin Woo, both of whom I really wanted to work with, I’m delighted and excited to be preparing [for filming].”
Kim Ji Won added, “I’m excited to be working together with such a great director, writer, and cast. I’m working hard to prepare so that I can show you a new side of myself through the character of Lee Eun Oh. In this difficult time, I hope that I’ll be able to provide even the smallest bit of joy.”
City Couple’s Way of Love will premiere sometime in late 2020.
